Beccaris, Custoza White (2018)

Category: Wine – Still – White
Grapes: Trebbiano Toscano, Tocai Friulano, and Garganega
Geography: Veneto, Italy

Their vineyards are located on the hills surrounding Custoza, a few kilometers south-east of Garda Lake. They are located on the edge of the Dolomites, ancient glaciers formed this beautiful alpine region.

The morainic landscape that characterizes the region is marked by a dense series of hills formed by deposits left by the glaciers that formed the nearby Lake Garda, interspersed with large gravel plains.

The particularly mild micro-climate allows the growth of some Mediterranean climate crops like vines, olive trees or even citrus, which are extremely rare at this latitude (46° North).

 

VARIETALS: Trebbiano Toscano, Tocai Friulano and Garganega. Hand Harvested

+25 year old vines. Estate grown.

SOIL: Chalk and broken slate

TASTING NOTES: Citrus and herbal notes on the nose, with a creamy and delicate body

Cara Sucia, Cereza (2018)

Grape: Cereza
Geography: Mendoza, Argentina

Cara Sucia Cereza 2018 is without doubt an exciting red, probably you’ve never tasted anything quite like it and wish that Durigutti had made more than 3,000 bottles.

The grape variety Cereza, meaning “cherry”, It’s thought to have been brought to Argentina by Spanish settlers and is often used to make rustic and deeply coloured white or rosé for the locals. So it’s rarely makes it to these shores. However, Durigutti have an old vine plot in Rivadavia that was planted in 1940, and they manage to extract a huge amount of colour from those concentrated grapes, creating a juicy and quite frankly mindboggling red wine.

Cara Sucia means “dirty face”, inspired by the winemaking brothers who grew up on these dusty vineyards. But there’s nothing dirty about their wine. It’s aged in concrete eggs so there’s no oak to mask the vibrant fruit, and it’s bottled without filtering or fining making it vegan-friendly.

it’s just as bright as a button. A gentle sense of sweetness to the fruit makes it a revelation with spicy food like the umami side of Thai and Indonesian street food, or tacos, arepas and curries. And with super low tannins, you can even chill it lightly for enjoying it
